Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
This is my fifth and final book in the 48 hour reading challenge! Good job to all the participants!!!
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is a comedy about two teens thrust together for one hilarious, sleepless night of adventure in a world of mix tapes, late-night living, and, live, loud music. Nick frequents New York's indie rock scene nursing a broken heart and Norah is questioning all of her assumptions about the world. Though they have nothing in common except for their taste in music, their chance encounter leads to an all-night quest to find a legendary band's secret show and ends up becoming the first date that could change both their lives.
So earlier today i read another story that also has two points of view (Flipped) out of those two i can definitely say this one is my favorite! Nick and Norah is a fresh and originaly book with a awesome soundtrack!! It was made into a movie which has two of my favorite actors in it- Kat Dennings and Michael Cera! This book is all about the music scene through out Manhattan and it kind of sucks you in with its dialogue and hilarious characters! Nick, a straight guy in a queer- core band, has just been dumped by his hot girlfriend Tris. He thought he was in love and was still groveling over the loss when he meets Norah, a straight edge catholic school girl, with a serious attitude and a "frigid personality". How they meet consists of one of my favorite lines from a book "Will you be my girlfriend for the next five minutes?" Ha! After that they are immedietley churned into this wild crazy night full of Ex's, Where's Fluffy (their favorite band) and crazy friends! This is a really exciting and funny book filled with alot of laid back humor and teenage love! Read it please!!!
